, no rain. scenario two, making landfall around new york city or a bit north, winds 15 to 25 miles per hour for us, probably no flooding, just rain and showers. scenario two, getting closer to us in between atlantic city and new york, winds 20 to 40 miles per hour and probably an inch or so of rain. heavy bands of rain will stay north of us. any time the system makes landfall the highested with uns are always just to the north -- highest winds are always just to the northeast where it crosses land. scenario four not so good. it comes into the delmarva into southeast p.a. and northeast maryland. now we have winds 40 to 70 miles an hour and rainfall up to 8 inches. that will building the worst case scenario. there are still plenty of models that have it doing something between scenario four and three. we'll keep you posted. it's only friday and it is kind of an evolving system. the reason why hurricanes are so hard to track is there's very little in terms of the steering currents. in the fall and summer it's not so strong. we have to watch it and see if it makes this extreme left turn as we g
